The press and the people here are talking too much about this match. They say it´s very speciall for both of them, more than a final. A kind of "Classic".
The reason is that they both made her juniors career together, playing doubles and playing singles in the same tournaments. They have face each other in a Rolland Garros juniors final.
But when they become pro, Guillermo didn´t rise so soon like David and his career was stopped for a lesion and for the "dopping trouble"
But now Coria is perhaps in her best moment, he is playing better, he is not trowing the racquet to the floor, and getting excellents results.
But if he is in her best moment ¿what about David? He is a top ten and he is playing like that, like one of the best players of the world. Very confidente, very strong, he doesn´t give a chance to her rivals.
Coria has played 6 sets (3 vs Acasuso and 3 vs Zabaleta), David only 4 but he played a 2 hourd doubles match with Lucas Arnold to defeat Kuerten/Sa in doubles late last night.

Head to Head
The have meet one time:
Lima 2000 (Clay) Coria won 6-2 6-7 6-1
Very tight and a long time ago. Same surface, but they were still entering into the pros

Note: David was born in 1/1/1982 and the "mago" Coria 13/1/1982, only 12 days between them.

I picked David. LIke I said in his thread, I think that he's really hungry now and he'll find a way

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I might add, that my opinion on the matter is totally objective of course, as I don't have a personal preference towards either player.

Really.

I lack direction.

If Coria can break the top 20 in the first half of the year, then one fifth of the top 25 will be argentines... and if Gaudio keeps it up, they would make up 1/4 of the top 20

I lack direction.

Coria's best ranking to date I believe is 25th. But yes, he certaintly has the game to be top 20. If he stays healthy he should be there by the years end.

I lack direction.

Yeah....so they've got age on their side...
I predict in the next 2 yrs... you'll find that Argentinians will dominate the top 20....

Guys like Nalbandian, Canas, Gaudio, Chela, Coria, Acasuso will probabaly stay at the top for awhile...they're all pretty young...

Come on Paradorn. Pick up your game. You can play better. You know you can. You can do it!

It's pretty hard to decide for one of them to win the match. I think David is not yet in a great level, but I don't know yet what's the level either of Coria, but I know he could beat David.

I like both of them!

Aren't all love stories destined to fail?
